What are love languages?
According to author Gary Chapman, there are five love languages:
Each of us tends to feel love in some of these areas more than other areas. And we all differ in the ways that we give and receive love. By learning to give love in the ways that our partner can best receive it, we can create stronger relationships.
Here's a super fun video exercise to figure out your love language:
How to use love languages to improve our relationships
If we want to create lives filled with love and meaning, we have to work at it. We have to both learn how to communicate to our partner what makes us feel loved and we need to show our partner love in the ways that they can receive it. That's how we can use our love language to improve our relationships.
Love language 1: Words of affirmation
Do you feel loved when you hear your partner offer encouraging, affirming words and compliments? Ask yourself, how do feel when your partner congratulates you, tells you did a good job, tells you that you look good, or thanks you for something? If these things make you feel the most loved and happy, words of affirmation may be your primary love language.
Love language 2: Acts of service
Do you feel loved when your partner helps you with tasks that reduce burden or ease your stress? Ask yourself, how do you feel when your partner does a chore for you, runs an errand for you, or takes care of something without having to be asked? If these things make you feel the most loved and happy, acts of service may be your primary love language.
Love language 3: Receiving gifts
Do you feel loved when your partner gets you thoughtful or extravagant gifts? Ask yourself how you feel when you get a gift from your partner that tells you he/she was thinking about you. If these things make you feel the most loved and happy, receiving gifts may be your primary love language.
Love language 4: Quality time
Do you feel loved when your partner gives you their undivided attention and you engage in meaningful conversation or activities? Ask yourself, how do you feel when you and your partner have a date night, go on a trip together, or have a deep conversation? If these things make you feel the most loved and happy, quality time may be your primary love language.
Love language 5: Physical touch
Do you feel loved when your partner shows you affection through touch? Ask yourself how you feel when you and your partner hold hands, kiss, hug, or sit/lay close together. If these things make you feel the most loved and happy, physical touch may be your primary love language.
